Oh jeez, I'm not sure I'd suggest AutoCat. Even I can't bear that. But the RDA-L list has a fair amount of discussion that still dusts off the traditional issues and tries to figure out what sill matters. Diane Hillmann On Apr 17, 2011, at 10:58 AM, Bill Dueber wrote: OK, so I've been

Mike: For sure dc:relation works, and has some subproperties that a bit more specific, but it's still pretty much a blunt instrument. I know I sound like a broken record, but RDA has a LOT of relationships to choose from--these are the WEMI-to-WEMI relationships:

Jonathan: I think you've cut to the chase on this one and seen the potential. I went to one of the roll out presentations at Midwinter on Summon, and was quite impressed. As someone who *was* an aggregator of metadata in the recent past (NSDL in the early part of this decade), I can attest to

Jonathan: What strikes me about the code list you found is how difficult it is to use, as compared to what we're starting to do for RDA. The methodology that ONIX uses to build and maintain their lists really pushes a lot of the onus over to the user to keep up with changes in their
